The immunological characteristics of an important group of animal-derived allergens, lipocalins, are poorly known. To explore the immunology of the lipocalin allergen Bos d 2, several mouse strains with different H-2 haplotypes were immunized with the allergen. Only the BALB/c mouse mounted a distinct humoral response against Bos d 2. The proliferative… CONTINUE READING
